Abstract: This information collection supports the consultation process by which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will select a revised logo and messaging for its Design for the Environment (DfE) program. A key goal of the Agency’s DfE program is to work with businesses to voluntarily incorporate safer chemicals and other health and environmental considerations into the design of their products and processes. To achieve this goal, DfE relies on outreach activities and information dissemination to industry participants and the public, as well as non-governmental organizations, EPA Regions, federal government laboratories, and state and local governments. Effective outreach and communications are vital to program success. The DfE program must ensure that its logo communicates clearly its safer chemistry and pollution prevention goals. DfE’s current logo has remained unchanged since the program began in 1992. The current DfE logo is dated and does not adequately convey and enable DfE’s objective: To advance chemicalbased products that are safer for people and the environment. A redesigned logo and messaging are needed to enhance communications and for the program to PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reach its potential. It is important for the redesign effort to be informed by consumers, manufacturing partners, retailers, and other key audiences. To help ensure broad public participation in the redesign process and that EPA receives input from a diverse demographic, the Agency will conduct a number of focus group sessions to obtain feedback on several logo design concepts and associated wording. DfE will also sponsor two surveys to gauge public awareness and understanding of the logo and its meaning before and after the redesign. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Individual adult consumers who are members of the general population. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 8,990. Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 1,997 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $62,076 per year, includes $0 annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: This is a new ICR.

content of the fuel; fuel to water ratio; rate of fuel consumption; and 
ambient conditions. Semiannual reports are also required.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Stationary gas turbines.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart GG).
    Estimated number of respondents: 535 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
